Archaeomagnetic Dating Results of PPC Project


Archaeomagnetism is a dating technique whose application has been rising. This technique originally required burned materials, but in certain Mexican archaeological sites, volcanic products with magnetic minerals were added to the stucco mix, enhancing the geomagnetic field record and allowing us to determine it in non-burned samples. Thanks to this the number of dating events increased, improving the detail of the chronologies; a clear example of this happened in Teopancazco's neighborhood. A detailed sampling of burned and non-burned stuccos sampled between 2015(31) and 2016(33) had been processed. The dates obtained will be analyzed and compared with other previous results in order to get a greater image of the development of Teotihuacan city.
